"This car is in great condition for its age. I've done all mechanical work and have the receipts to go with it. It bright red with a Panasonic stereo/cd. It has the Z-28 wheels so it handles like dream."

"I bought this car off the Chevrolet lot in February 2001. It is a champagne colored SS and came with SLP exhaust and "ultra performance" suspension packages, 6 speed transmission, T-tops and 17" wheels with 275x40 tires. It has been my daily driver for 14 years and counting. I love it. I went to the market the other day and a guy driving a new BMW M3 told me how clean and good looking my car was. I've had comments like this since I bought it. Car guys like the Camaro. What a fun car to drive with plenty of power and rear wheel drive. Drift is predictable and controllable with the 3.42:1 rear axle and the wide Z-rated tires. Steering response is fantastic with the Bilstein suspension system and the 35mm front anti-sway bar. The ride is a bit rough / stiff, and you have to watch your "nose" when approaching driveways, but the head-snapping responsiveness of both the steering and throttle makes it all worth it. If driven mildly, skip-shifting as much as possible, and using 6th on the freeway, it will get a respectable 22 mpg in a mix of freeway and city. All freeway and just cruising (obeying the speed limits) will yield the rated 27 mpg. Like another reviewer wrote, I've had only minor issues with my car at 129,000 miles: Driver's window motor, water pump, roller bearing in the left rear axle, and bubbling of the clear-coat on the black roll-hoop are about it. It still shows the same values at the smog station (I live in CA) while power and fuel economy haven't changed at all since day one. Highly recommended."

Excellent modern muscle car. No regrets owning it

"Bought new out of dealer's inventory in late 2000. LS1 engine was the same as the Corvette at that time. Tons of power. Despite a set of 2.73 gears for highway economy it ran a respectable best of 13.44 @ 107.43mph at Sacramento Raceway. It knocked down a dependable 20 mpg in a 52 mile round trip commute. Never had a mechanical problem with this car. Some electrical issues. Failed power window motor which I replaced myself. Cracked solder joint on the Body Control Module that killed the radio and the power windows. I also repaired this myself. When I sold it last week everything still worked and it still ran very strong. Only real flaw was some bubbling on the clear coat on the black bar over the roof."

"My 1994 Camaro V6 was bought used on 12/2013 with 5439 miles from a collector in Ohio for $6500. I have also owned a '76 V8 Camaro and a '92 V6 Camaro. After the cops ran into the '76, it was sold following repair. Only problem was a front wheel bearing failure with in 90,000 miles. I sold the '92 to my son who still owns it with 275,000 miles and going strong. There were issues with the ignition system, radiator fan sequencing, and corrosion of the engine core plugs. After purchase, I drove my '94 Camaro back to Texas with a howling fuel pump. As long as the tank was full no problem. Finally, the pump failed at 11,635 miles and had the fuel pump replaced at a Chevie dealer in Dallas on 4/3/15 for $859.88 including tax. The dealership tried to rip me off for $1100 initially. The pump was an AC Delco original. I have run cross country non stop for as high as 921 miles in less than 15 hours and my 5'9" 220lb. frame felt good despite running north and south road in Oklahoma. Mileage is no the best at only 25mpg; but I don't care about cost because of the low cost vehicle. I've replace the original tires and spark plugs. Plug replacement is easy on the left side but the right side with alternator bracing and the funky EGR valve is a challenge. Next time I am going to try plug changes from the bottom on the right side. Compared to my '97 TBird and my '15 Fusion, the car is really a cheap, crude, noisy rugged vehicle with a harsh ride on Houston "streets"! I am a retired mechanical engineer and wrench all my automobiles. Had this pump failed near home, I would have replaced it myself."

"I owned a '95 Automatic Chevy Camaro, 3.4 L. Do not expect to get any more than 22 miles to the gallon in this car. In my experience with the automatic, you'll average right around 20 mpg. This was my first car and it was already higher miles when I got it. Got it at 150,000 miles and wrecked it at 166,000- bear that in mind as you read further. Overall it was a pretty good car, but it left me stranded several times. It wasn't uncommon for it to have trouble starting in the mornings and then start up right away once I got home from work. It also had a pretty bad oil leak towards the end of it's career (as F body's usually do). Don't be surprised if it has a small leak if you buy it. Even the ones inspected and sold at a dealer may have a leak within your first month or two of driving it. If you're looking to buy one of these used they're almost all high miles these days, so you can expect there to be some cosmetic issues. On mine the seal around the driver-side door was toast, and the door would drop down an inch or two when it was opened. The interior was very worn and didn't hold up very well, but again, some of that is simply because they've been around for 20 years. My advice, buy it if you can get it cheap! Be careful if you're buying a '96 or '97 though, because the "Opti-Spark" on those models are extremely touchy and likely to leave you stranded once in a while if it rains. I bought mine for $2,000 and I'd say it was a good deal."

"I've driven this car for 15 years. A/C compressor and clutch slave cylinder replaced under warranty. Another clutch slave replaced by me at 110,000 miles (it's weak point). Replaced the clutch at the same time, it was only about half worn. Great car to drive cross country, I CONSECUTIVELY got 31+ miles per gallon before they started putting ethanol in the fuel. It has the L1E (?) package which I love. Quiet on the highway. BUT... it has the ugliest interior in the world, bland, flat battle ship gray fabric trimmed in bland flat battle ship gray plastic and bland flat battleship gray vinyl. Ugly and flat."
